Dmitry Peskov supports Kirsan Ilyumzhinov

The press secretary of the Russian president Vladimir Putin and head of the Russian chess federation Supervisory Board, Dmitry Peskov, believes that the current president of the World Chess Federation (FIDE), Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, effectively performs his duties and must retain the post of the president of the federation.

"Ilyumzhinov should remain head of FIDE until the time for re-election. We do not believe that there are now grounds for early dismissal. Moreover, we see that, despite the sanctions that apply to him, he is very effective in fulfilling his duties. We support him and believe that he must remain at his post", - RIA Novosti quoted Peskov.
